Our requirement for using infocenter in production is to be able to update existing doc plugins, and deploy new ones, without having to restart the server. I found some doc in CVS referring to update and addSite commands that could accomplish this. |
I ran an addSite command (with the -from site pointing to the root plugins directory), and followed that with the apply command. I refreshed my browser, and saw no change in my doc structure, even though there were several new doc plugins in the -from site. I then looked in my infocenter log, and there were log entries for every plugin that already existed, but no log entries telling me anything about the new plugins I wanted to get picked up.
When I try to rerun the addSite, I get a log entry that says site already exists.
So I have to believe I'm on the right track but missing some crucial piece. Where exactly should hte -to and -from parameters be pointing to in order for the update or addSite to work? Do I have to have my doc plugins packaged as features? Do my two and from parameters have to be live InfoCenter sites, or can they be plugin/feature directories?
Any additional guidance would sure save me some time. I believe this should work, I think I just do not know the proper criteria for specifying what can/should be updated.
Many thanks in advance,
